Contact lens materials and fitting techniques are evolving rapidly, and with this evolution comes new potentially unforeseen problems. The clinics are in need of contemporary consent forms in order to protect Pacific University and its students from potential lawsuits. The forms would also serve as a useful education tool for each patient prior to the fitting and dispensing of contact lenses. Therefore, our project will serve not only as a legal protective mechanism, but will also serve as an important educational tool for both the patient and intern regarding the potential risks associated with contact lens use.
